Year 6

School is now closed for the Easter holidays and the foreseeable future.  Teachers will be available for supporting distance learning from Monday 6th April at 9.30am.
More information will be shared with you over the coming days and weeks about how we will support children and their families.​
In the meantime, over the next two weeks, children could:​
practise counting​
practise times tables​
play board games​
read for at least 30 minutes a day​
keep a diary​
take some physical exercise​
learn to put on their coat, tie shoe laces, dress themselves​
play in the garden​
help prepare food​
tidy their bedrooms​
There is now a wealth of ideas online about what parents can do with children at home and these will be of help over the coming weeks.

Welcome to Year 6! - Croeso i blwyddyn 6!


Welcome to our year 6 page. You can find out about our work and topics through our snapshots and access useful websites from here through the links below. First you need to know who the teachers are....

Mrs Bayley 6L
Mr Rhodes 6R
Mrs C Thomas (one to one TA)

Ms Green (One to one TA)

PE is on Monday and Wednesday. Children will need shorts/joggers/leggings, a T-shirt/sweatshirt and trainers.  Children with pierced ears will need to either remove them, or bring protective micropore tape to cover earings that cannot be removed.

All Year 6 children are issued with planners at the beginning of the academic year.  All homework tasks can be noted in these as well as forthcoming tests, trips and events. Homework will be given out on a Wednesday to be handed in the following Tuesday. Homework slips with the tasks on will be stuck into the children's homework books. Feel free to stick any homework over the slips once completed.

We added our termly "Snapshots" these give a brief overview of the work and topics that will be covered over the term.  Click on the word documents below to view.

 

Our current topic is "Our Earth".

We will be researching the current environmental issues surrounding our planet and what can be done to combat their effect.

Renewable energy sources are a big focus and we will be investigating how much energy they produce and their advantages and disadvantages. 

Learners will be given a say in the areas of these topics we explore so we would definitely encourage extra research outside of classroom time.

 

 

  • Regular tables practise, in preparation for tables tests.
  • Words to learn for a spelling test (from Ms Parish fortnightly).
